Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 years ago):
So many of the BP meds I have been placed on seem to elevate y=my blood sugars, cause arrythmias and/or aren't effective. I am glucose intolerant with a HGB A1C of around 6.5. (with or without metformin - stays the same)
From this study (3 years ago):
I have recently had multiple episodes of severe diaphoresis followed by syncope or near syncope.
